Pine Was Destined To Act

12 November 2010 8:06 AM, PST | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Chris Pine knew acting was his destiny when he shot his first big screen role - because it was filmed at the same studio where both his dad and grandmother once worked.

The Star Trek hunk has acting in his blood - his maternal grandmother Anne Gwynne was a famous 'scream queen' in the 1940s with roles in numerous horror movies, while his father, Robert Pine, made a name for himself starring in U.S. cop show CHiPs.

And Pine admits he was overwhelmed when he showed up for work on his movie debut Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, because it was filmed at Universal Studios - the former employer of his acting relatives.

He tells Details magazine, "My father calls acting a state of permanent retirement with short spurts of work. My grandmother was an actress, too. In the thirties and forties she was under contract with Universal Studios. Crazy credits, lots of them.

"My dad was also under contract with Universal Studios. And my first film was shot on the same stage they both worked on at Universal. Crazy, right?" »
